Officials are searching for a vehicle taken from the post office on Highway 41 with a child inside. ALEA has issued an emergency missing child alert. They sent out an alert that it had been canceled, but it was a mistake; they were attempting to cancel the Tennessee AMBER Alert.
The vehicle is a 2003 silver Grand Prix, tag # 43CR742. The child is a 1-year-old boy named Zy’Koby Clark. He was last seen wearing green checkered shorts, a white t-shirt and blue/grey zip up shoes at the post office around 10:20 am in Lineville, Alabama on 20 April 2017.
According to officials, the suspect is 29-year-old Tiarra Ingram, who reportedly may have mental problems and has run away before. Ingram, the mother and the child were all reportedly together in the vehicle, and the mom went into the post office. When she came out, the vehicle was gone.
Call Lineville PD at 256-396-2633 or local police if you see them. Officials have deployed a helicopter to aid in the search. The mother doesn’t think they’ll get far, because there was only about $3 of gas left in the tank. They do not know direction of travel.
